How to Make Sage Tea
Sage Tea Recipe
Pour eight ounces of boiling water over ten large, fresh, sage leaves (or a heaping teaspoon of dried sage). Steep for five minutes and strain.
Sage tea may taste astringent (this is a polite word for bitter). It's an acquired taste, but you'll be surprised at how effective it can be. Sweeten it with sugar, honey or my favorite, home grown stevia. I also like to combine sage tea with other tasty blends like Darjeeling or English Breakfast.
Note: Avoid using sage tea medicinally if you're pregnant.
Cautions for Using Sage in Herbal Preparations: It is contraindicated if you are currently taking diabetes, anticonvulsant or sedative medications.
